When I was a teenager, a girlfriend and I were sitting outside her house on the curb of the sidewalk, smoking cigarettes. It was probably 8:30 or so at night. Nice, calm, warm Arizona night. I brought her attention to what seemed to be a small craft hovering over the houses a few blocks away. It had little flashing red lights all around it and the craft itself was oval in shape. We sat and watched it with our jaws hanging. It probably hovered there for a minute or two, then sped away at break-neck speed. It was actually quite neat.
These days, I wonder if it was a remote control or something. Either way, I'll never forget it.
